Depending on one's place in the world, it may seem like there has been very little ethics in the local, national, and global responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Or, for others, it appears that ethicists are fully engaged and working overtime, from conducting covid-19 related research, holding public seminars and teaching ethics to healthcare workers, to advising politicians and policy makers.  Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic, consequent BLM protests, and decolonizing global health movements have moved at least some senior American bioethicists to state that there needs to be a new bioethics that is more attuned to 'structural injustice' and global in scope.  So where does that leave the fields of public health ethics and global health ethics? Are there any meaningful distinctions to be made in aims, scope of methodologies among the three? I will discuss some good and bad reasons for doing so, using examples.
